Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box || January

January 1, 2022

And you're really going to love it. 


This month included three single oils and one blend. 

Clary Sage: Calms, Supports Hormones (Kid Safe 2+, Pregnancy, Dog, & Cat Safe) 
Pine: Soothes and Supports Circulation (Kid Safe 2+ & Pregnancy Safe) 
Citrus Burst: Uplifts, Cleans (Kid Safe 10+, Pregnancy & Dog Safe) 
Patchouli: Calms, Skincare, Repels Insects (Kid Safe 2+, Pregnancy, Dog, & Cat Safe) 

If you walk into my house anytime soon and wonder "What's that smell?" It's 95% likely to be Citrus Burst... and if you're wondering what I smell like... it's that plus some Clary Sage and Patchouli mixed in. Man do I love citrus. 

Peep those pretty labels. 

Y'all know I've been using Simply Earth's sister company WildRoot for my deodorant for the past two years. I was on the launch team, and this is one of those products that I fell in love with and have used nothing else since the day I opened the box. Just as aside, but I always order the three pack and it lasts me nearly a year every single time. 

So you can imagine my excitement when I saw the recipe for making deodorant this month! I haven't cross compared ingredients, but the Zinc that is included this month (and used in the deodorant) is what makes WildRoot's line so kick butt. 

This month you'll get recipes to make deodorant (with the cutest bottle), a winter themed roll-on, baby powder (I used it three times yesterday), a solid perfume, diffuser blend, and an armpit detox mask. 

The extras included are: 

Zinc Oxide
Deodorant tube (reusable and biodegradable) 
Powder Puff
Kaolin Clay

I jumped right out of the gate making the powder and deodorant. 

The powder came together incredibly easy, I really expected the almond oil to just clump into the powder but it all mixed together really well. 

Those three oils combine my favorite scents, so before we headed out for New Year's Eve I powdered up for a second time yesterday. 

Can I tell y'all I've been contemplating buying a big ole powder puff for weeks (that South Louisiana extended Summer during December is rough). It's hard to smell fresh when it's 80 degrees most of the year.

I also made the deodorant, both the bees wax and coconut oil are in the Big Bonus Box when you order. 

The directions warned that the melted liquid would solidify when you started mixing in the powders, don't panic... it doesn't happen immediately. I had a good minute before it started to solidify. There was plenty of time to get it all mixed together well. 

Make sure you're using a cup that has a pour spout and the deodorant container is a breeze to fill. I even filled mine, realized I had a bit that wasn't mixed perfect, poured it out, and then poured it back in with no issue at all. 

It's Emily proof, so I know anyone else can do it. 

Nothing goes unused in these recipes, the diffuser blend (which y'all know I always love - I think my diffuser is always going) combines all four oils from this month's box. 

What better way to start off the new year than with a fresh winter scent. 

I also purchased a new diffuser after my old one croaked... I saw an Instagram ad for Candyl diffusers. It has LED lights to make it look like a candle flame and you can actually blow it out to turn it off. I need to go ahead and apologize to everyone that we visit from here on out, Elliot has made it his life mission to blow out all diffusers. (What's worse is that since he can't blow it out he puts his hand over it to turn it off. - I thought I was going to have to tackle him to the ground to make him quit harassing a friend's diffuser.) 

A few things before I wrap this up - 

Next month's box will contain the Clean Skin blend, Lavender, Palmarosa, and Peru Balsam. Can y'all guess the theme? 

This month's 13% to end human trafficking is going to the organization Wipe Every Tear, they help combat human trafficking by offering opportunities and means to leave or escape trafficking, providing safe homes for survivors where they can receive care, and quality education so that survivors can make a living and follow their dreams.
